Question and answer books first grade
Book List for Asking QuestionsI am very excited to share this unit with you. When I was planning this unit I decided to hone in on the author's craft and structure standards, making it a "double dose" of standards when we combined it with our poetry unit, since "Owl Moon" is a book written in rich prose, like poetry is written. I taught this unit in my reading block and taught my poetry unit in my writing block. I was excited that I could hone in on several different comprehension skills in this unit. Students will also have their written response packet where they have to actually write their questions. This addresses standard RL1.
Asking and Answering Questions About Our Story
One important comprehension strategy we want to teach our kids is asking questions. Our curiosity compels us to find the answers. These texts are written in such a way that it makes kids want to ask questions. You can read more about asking questions over at The Measured Mom. The Empty Pot by Demi is a fantastic little book that teaches the value of honesty, but the author gets kids guessing along the way. What will happen when he goes before the Emperor?
If you are not teaching Common Core, then the pack is still valuable to use when teachings students to answer questions using the text and to ask themselves questions while reading. The 2nd Grade version of this is the exact same format and stories, but some of the questions and texts are a little more complex.
